On the evening of November 1, exactly one week before voters went to the polls, a black church in Greenville, Mississippi was set on fire, and the words “Vote Trump” spray-painted on the side of the building.

"We have seen a vision of America’s dystopian future, and it’s a future that won’t last for only four or eight years", writes Christian Christensen adding that:

"What made the event so poignant was not the shocking violence and apparent racism of the act, but rather the sense of its inevitability and banality, and that US politics had come to a point where supporters felt both the need and the entitlement to burn down a church in support of their candidate".
